Praise for the Print Edition

No evangelical now writing on apologetics surpasses Moreland in philosophical ability. Every person who intends to speak for Christ to the contemporary mind should master the content and spirit of this book.

Dallas Willard, professor of philosophy, The University of Southern California

Scaling the Secular City is the most sophisticated apologetics book I have read. It lays out the issues, arguments, and counterarguments in a thorough way. Moreland’s special strength lies in philosophy of science, and the book makes a real advance in the interface between Christianity and science.

William Lane Craig, research professor of philosophy, Talbot School of Theology

[This] is not just another apologetics book. This is a fresh, up-to-date defense of the Christian faith by a bright mind. J.P. Moreland musters new arguments, tackles new problems, and reveals penetrating insight. . . . His insights into the contemporary philosophical issues make him one of the ablest young apologists in America.

Norman L. Geisler, cofounder, Southern Evangelical Seminary
